Upper Deck, a global leader in entertainment and sports collectibles and games, has announced the date the new Neopets Battledome Trading Card Game (TCG) will be available. Beginning June 26, the TCG will be available to purchase and play at local game shops in the U.S. and Canada, which are members of the extensive network of Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealers. 

The Neopets Battledome trading card game invites players to explore the world of Neopia where the magic of their favorite virtual pets comes to life. Players will immerse themselves in fast-paced gameplay by combining strategy, limitless creativity and dice battles with characters from Neopia. Using a deck of Neopets, Faeries, Paint Brushes, Legends, Equipment, Codestones and more, two players go head-to-head in a best-of-three-round battle to become the champion of the Battledome. Every turn, each player plays cards and rolls dice to attack or defend their Neopet in a battle. Starter decks include everything players need to enjoy the game, and booster packs can be added to players’ collections to enhance the gameplay. 

“Millennials thrive on nostalgia, and there’s no better way to revisit your youth than with the iconic Neopets brand,” says Jason Masherah, president, Upper Deck. “Our new Neopets Battledome Trading Card Game bridges generations, offering adults a throwback to their favorite childhood characters and younger collectors and gamers an introduction to the exciting magic that Neopia brings. This TCG is another great example of how we're accomplishing our mission to deliver the experiences both players and collectors crave.” 

“Teaming up with Upper Deck allows us to deepen the connection between Neopets fans and their favorite characters in new and inspiring ways,” says Dominic Law, chief executive officer, Neopets. “Neopets Battledome Trading Card Game extends the virtual game experience, immersing players in the world of Neopia like never before.” 

Upper Deck also plans to release more sets later this year and will launch a website that provides a store locator to find and purchase the game, find and register for Upper Deck and Certified Diamond Dealer-approved organized play tournaments and as a deck-building tool allowing players to create and save their decks. 

The Battledome TCG will be available for purchase online at UpperDeckStore.com and Upper Deck’s Certified Diamond Dealer hobby shops throughout the U.S. and Canada.
